New Nbody

Hey Everyone,

We will be releasing a new Nbody application this week. This version of the application utilizes a different method of initializing the bodies, sampling a distribution function instead of a potential. This version will hopefully resolve issues many of you have been having.

Happy holiday season

Hopefully, a lot more GPUs and CPUs will join after the holiday presents. At GPUGRID we are going away starting next week. The first to come back is Nate by the end of the year, early new year. Also still remember that if you want, there is the possibility to make a donation. Donations are used to fund a PhD student which can work on Gpugrid. Last year we have received many donations. Thanks to everybody. This year we also did well in terms of scientific publications: N. Stanley, S. Esteban and G. De Fabritiis, Kinetic modulation of a disordered protein domain by phosphorylation, Nat. Commun. 5, 5272 (2014). pdf G. Lauro, N. Ferruz, S. Fulle, M. J. Harvey, P. W. Finn, and G.

From next year we are also trying to have a larger impact in biomedicine, further developing new small molecules which can be used for treatment of disease. Best, gdf

Fixed credit system was launched. In the current experiment 130 credits are granted for each WU.

Запущена система с фиксированными кредитами. В текущем эксперименте за каждый WU выдается 130 кредитов.

New Modfit Runs
Source:  Milkyway@home
mardi 9 décembre 2014 22:36

Hey Everyone,

Just a heads up, I will be starting new runs over the next couple days that will have a different step size in a computationally intensive section of our code. Through some work we did, we found that this step size could be optimized and reduced to improve the speed at which our code runs without sacrificing accuracy. We expect to see these runs complete in about 1/5th the time depending on the platform. Credits will hopefully still be calculated correctly, but if you think they are not for these runs please post here. If these runs cause you any trouble with these runs or you notice you stop receiving work units please post that here too. These runs will all include the tag _fast_ in the work unit name so it should be easy to track.

For now, these optimizations will only be used on the Modfit code, but in the near future we plan on also using them on original separation code, too.

If you have any questions about this optimization or problems, please let me know,

FightNeglectedDiseases@Home server is up... and almost running

Dear all,

The long awaited revamp of the FM@H server has finally happened - thanks to Benjamin. And thanks to the generous donations that we collected at the website we were able to buy another SSD to build the FiND@H server on. This should be super-fast and will allow us to venture into different diseases beyond malaria, using the same 'whole genome docking' approach.

We should have the first work-units ready within a week or two.

Thanks again for your patience.

Discontinued CUDA 4.2 (update)

vendredi 21 novembre 2014 11:47

We had to discontinue cuda 4.2 apps because of some time limit in the executable. As they were going to be discontinued anyway, we will only reintroduce it if really necessary. If you were using cuda4.2, update your driver * Discontinued CUDA 4.2 We need CUDA 6 to properly support the new Maxwell, so I'll be retiring the old CUDA 4.2 build. If you are still receiving version 4.2 WUs, please consider updating your driver to version 343 or above.
